Maxwell House Original 100% Arabica Fractional Packs
Kraft Vending & OCS announced the arrival of Maxwell House Original 100% Arabica fractional packs, available in caffeinated and decaffeinated varieties. Each brews one pot of coffee and is individually wrapped in foil and sealed to preserve freshness, aroma and flavor.
"Office managers and foodservice operators are now able to meet the growing demand for premium coffee with a product that is of value," says Barry Guerwitz, an associate business manager of roast and ground coffee at Kraft Foods. "We feel this will be a perfect complement to our existing roast and ground portfolio."
Kraft also is offering branded cups at javastock.com. It allows foodservice operators the opportunity to purchase branded cups, including General Foods International, Gevalia, Maxwell House, Maxwell House Café Collection and Yuban.
Newtech Pod Pro Brewer
Newtech Beverage System Ltd.'s Pod Pro single-cup pod brewer made its industry debut during the National Automatic Merchandising Association's recent Coffee Service Education Summit in Cherry Hill, NJ. ZeeCooper (Lusby, MD), a product broker, took the wraps off the machine and is helping Newtech establish a nationwide broker network to represent it before the trade.
The new brewer features a stylish LCD display with preset cup volumes ranging from 5 fl.ozs. to 12 fl.ozs. A pressurized pre-infusion brewing method assures optimum flavor extraction, and brew strength is easily adjusted by changing the volume setting. The machine's pod draw accommodates a wide variety of pod sizes and has two holders to prevent flavor transfer.
The Pod Pro is available in two models: The H701B works with a plumbed-in water supply and the H701 offers plumbed-in or manual-fill options.
